What it is: Terrytoon entry
Two children are terrorized by a witch who leaves Pandora’s Box in their home. Can they resist opening it?
This cartoon has a pretty low rating on IMDB, but I have to admit I liked it a bit better than the usual run of cartoons from the studio. At least I got one good laugh from it; the box spewing out bottles of Castor Oil as part of the evils of the world I found pretty amusing. Still, I suspect this one was supposed to be scary, and it doesn’t quite pull it off. There are gags involving a dachshund, some snatches of operatic singing and a few touches of surrealness. All in all, this is a mixed bag.
